LilyTerm is a terminal emulator based off of libvte that aims to be fast and lightweight, Licensed under GPLv3.
Own opinion: LilyTerm is a nice and lightweight terminal emulator. It consumes even less memory than Sakura or Xfce's Terminal do.
A little statistics:
============== VIRT = RES = SHR =====
With 1 tab:
Xfce Terminal 138m 11m 9456
Sakura 140m 10m 8880
LilyTerm 127m 10m 8136
With 5 tabs (which I use most of the time):
Xfce Terminal 139m 12m 9812
Sakura 144m 12m 9500
LilyTerm 129m 11m 8488
With 100 tabs:
Xfce Terminal 165m 20m 11m
Sakura 152m 19m 10m
LilyTerm 142m 23m 8492
As you can see, LilyTerm's memory consumption (RES) grows a bit faster with opened tabs number growth, but who actually uses 100 tabs? :)
So, it would be nice to see this program in the Portage some day.

Ebuild for latest unstable 0.9.9~rc8
Hi, since I discovered and really liked lilyterm as well I used your ebuild for writing an ebuild for the latest unstable version of lilyterm :)

Improved ebuild, changed dependency logic to use gkt2-only libs. Looks like it doesn't need gtk3 to work (maybe it could be gtk2 _or_ gtk3?).
Needs a little more love (installs example config in wrong place).

An .ebuild for LilyTerm v.0.9.9~rc9 with fixed GTK+ and VTE dependencies.
0.9.9.4 is in the tree.

I opted to fix a dep on x11-libs/vte:0 since that was "recommended" and since detection of newer vte was clearly broken.
